really liked it

This was actually a really good book, It was not like most things you expect to read, It took place in a work camp, located in Russia. The book was about the life of a prisoner, It talked about what life was like, what you had to do to just survive, what the guards where like. I learned a lot from this book, for instance, what people are really willing to do to their fellow man, what people are willing to do to survive, even if they live in a hell hole. I will read this book again and would recommend it to most readers.

Jenny What hooked you?

Timothy Ackerson First off the great detail was a great hook, but then just reading the horrific events that took place in this camp kept me turning pages.
